"Bring home the bacon" debate is a case study in how stupid we've all become
Well said, that Carl Kinsella.
How are we supposed to focus on the things that matter when media organisations refuse to? Ivan Yates and Matt Cooper ran a segment on whether or not we've reached political correctness. Niall Boylan had a discussion about whether or not it's okay to ban phrases that nobody really wants to ban [as PETA has suggested].

As a matter of pure coincidence, other reports from outlets like the Daily Mail and Today FM reported that the HSE was going to ban its employees from using phrases like "love," "pet" or "dear." That wasn't true either. Again, it was one line in a huge report that asked the question as to whether or not it was the best course of action to use such terms. It wasn't mentioned again.

Unlike phrases about meat, this actually matters. This is the kind of thing that could actually change how people are treated in hospital. But again, it wasn't true. The public – which has lost its capacity to verify what is true and what is not — was being lied to by the media. That's how it works now.

A Business With No End - The New York Times
**This article is amazing and has all the things.

Olivet University was established in California in 2000 by an evangelical pastor named David Jang. His global religious community — often referred to, simply, as “the Community” — has been the subject of numerous articles that allege labor violations, fraud and abuse. That includes a 2014 Mother Jones story in which former religious followers of Mr. Jang said that the Community recruited them from China and brought them to the U.S. on student visas to study at Olivet University. In reality, the followers said, they spent most of their time working illegally, for very little pay, churning out clickbait for the International Business Times.

How Did the Climate Apocalypse Become Old News?
self-censorship than ratings-chasing... in fear of right-wing backlash...But public apathy, and its cousin climate complacency, is as big a problem — perhaps bigger.

Nobody knows what’s inside the newly found massive Egyptian sarcophagus | The Verge
26 Reasons For And Against Opening The Ominous Ancient Black Sarcopahgus. It took about four hours for this fascinating titbit of archaeological news to be turned into a listicle, which is a modern-day curse the Pharaohs could never have imagined. Contains more references to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK than you're likely to find in the Journal of Archaeological Science, but one can always hold out hope.
